something you need to know about the spinning bike

BK-100

1.FOOT POSITION  

• If toe cages and straps are used, be sure to align the ball of your foot over the center  of the pedal.This is the firmest, widest part of your foot and therefore the most efficient  and comfortable foot position.                                                       

• If clipless pedals are used, make sure that your cleats are aligned properly on yourshoes so that the ball of your foot is positioned on the center of the pedal.


2.SADDLE HEIGHT  

Adjusting your bike’s saddle height is a simple way to improve the comfort and safety of your ride. It’s easy to determine the right height—simply place your feet in the toe cages or clip into the pedals and rotate the pedals until one leg reaches the bottom of the pedal stroke. That leg should have a 25–35 degree bend in the knee.


3.SADDLE FORE/AFT POSITION 

The seat also adjusts forward and backward, so that your knees will be properly aligned relative to your feet. Sit on the saddle in riding position, with your hands on the handlebars and the balls of your feet over the center of the pedals. Then position the pedals so they are level with each other. Use your forward leg for the alignment check. Picture an imaginary line (or have someone hold a plumb line) from the front of your kneecap straight down. Your seat is in the right position when your knee cap is directly above the center of the pedal.

4.HANDLEBAR HEIGHT & FORE/AFT   

Adjust the handlebars to a position that is comfortable and limits unnecessary strain on your neck and back. Fore/aft adjustments on the handlebars is available on some models of the Spinner
